Ever since I was forced to go down on methadone because of it's awful side effects, I've been in excruciating pain and been more miserable than ever. I've been taking Percocet, Norco, or Dilaudid for the breakthrough pain, and even that is barely touching it. I really don't have a life anymore.. all I do most days is lie in bed or sit on the couch and watch TV. I try to go out everyday, but usually it is only for short errands then I promptly return home to lie in bed.
As of right now, I'm in so much pain that it's even hard to type this message. I'm scared to death because school starts in a month and I barely got by last semester (I had to drop two classes). I just switched to a new PM and although she is the sweetest, most caring doctor I've ever met, we still have been having a hard time getting me on the right medication because I'm ultra sensitive to side effects. Name a side effect of a certain medication, I've most likely had it. It's very unfortunate.
Anyway, sorry to complain, but I just really need support right now. Thanks so much folks!!
